African Petro Industry to Benefit from Exclusive Distribution Partnership 

Feb 06 2014

Grabner Instruments (Austria), a global leader in petroleum testing instruments and a pioneer in the development of automatic vapor pressure testers, has entered into an exclusive agreement with SPECTRO South Africa for the distribution of Grabner Instruments in Sub-Sahara Africa.

Spectro South Africa is a subsidiary of Spectro Analytical Instruments, a world-leading supplier of analytical instruments for optical emission and X-ray fluorescence spectrometry. Grabner Instruments and Spectro are both units of Ametek, Inc.

“We look forward to the opportunities created by our partnership,” notes Marie Julsing, Managing Director of Spectro South Africa. “Spectro has strong, well-established relationships within the African petroleum and mining industries. Many of our current customers are also Grabner customers. Our partnership with Grabner greatly extends the support we can provide to those customers, who can now benefit from having a one-stop shop for the complete line of Spectro and Grabner analysers.”

“Spectro is an ideal partner for us,” adds Oliver Sauer, Head of Grabner Marketing & Sales. “As units of Ametek, Inc. we share a common vision of developing innovative, high-quality instruments based on a firm understanding of our customers’ needs and backed up by world-class service and support.”

Located in Kempton Park near Johannesburg, Spectro will act as the sales and support hub for Grabner analysers throughout Africa.
